Boomkat Product Review:
Marc Richter (Black To Comm) whips YouTube samples into a psychedelic wormhole of ideas on his outstanding 2nd LP as Jemh Circs; (untitled) Kingdom. Landing somewhere between early James Ferraro and Spencer Clarke, one of Merzbow’s more colourful whirligigs, and an asylum fitted with walls of TV screens playing every YouTube video at once, it’s not for the casual listener, but those who like their musical data dense with compressed information will be left reeling by the end of the record.
"In contrast to Black To Comm's analog tape- and vinyl-based sound, in Jemh Circs he works with digital sources by primarily sampling modern pop music (and various other oddities) on YouTube (et al.) and sending chunks of it through a variety of arcane transformations and mutations. Using similar esoteric methods as on his 2016 self-titled debut album (CELL 001LP) but with very different results the record deconstructs the hypermodern sound of pop music with a post punk attitude, energy, and primitivism.
Richter's combining disparate elements that shouldn't really work together but somehow all the chaos is making strange sense creating a collection of oddly diverging sonic vignettes with a surreal and anarchic spirit. This is music deeply rooted in the present but still difficult to pinpoint to a certain year or style. (Untitled) Kingdom converts a seemingly one-dimensional concept into a complex puzzle of ideas, sounds, and narratives; completely assimilating the original sources and transforming them into novel entities with an unexpected melodic and rhythmic quality.”
